That is indeed awesome. I am as surprised as when I discovered about the whole series where you can play as a chicken. Very happy to know these little things are in the game, as I am one giving priority to games that do more then just point you things to be killed.

It's cool when such little "Easter Eggs" such as this (and this a pretty big one) are in such a game.

I was aware of the regular tag but never realized the freeze tag. Never actually played the regular version since I wasn't really part of any kinship or group when I first discovered it. I originally just thought it was part of the festival games until I saw it was still around later.

Thats one thing I always loved about LOTRO, is the exploration. There is always something neat to find with all the unique not-copy/pasted locations you find in most other MMOs. Every ruin is different, every corner of each map is different, the dungeons and caves are all different....its so refreshing!

I'll admit, through all my travels, I don't think I ever found or knew about this freeze tag before! With this article, I'm sure it'll be the thing to do this weekend though...hehe

Another reason why LoTRO is doing everything right. :)

Wow, I've played for over a year and never knew about that. Time to weave it in to our weekly Kinship events.

@Plastic I've been playing for almost 4, and I'm confuddled. I never knew about this. The game really should be called Nooks and Crannies Online.

I've played this from time to time, it's fun! When it first really got noticed on my server, it was during....oh, a Spring or Summer fest, it's been so long I forget, so it was assumed that it was a 'festival time only' deal, and was inactive any other time. It being not far from the festival grounds probably ties into that, since that's when the most people are in that area to notice it.

Fluff like this isn't my cup of tea, but I'm glad it's there for those who want it. Kudos to Turbine for doing their best to have something for everyone, and to Justin for the informative article.

It's things like that that make me really love LotRO even though I don't play it quite as much as some other games. It's one of the few MMOs that has managed to successfully make the world itself interesting. Most MMos once you level through an area you would rarely go back for any reason (aside from main gathering areas) whereas LotROs version of Middle Earth is enjoyable to just explore. Be it because of little "fluff" content such as this or just some of the incredibly beautiful areas in the game, there's always something cool to see or do.
